How long of a line...

...are you willing to wait in for great fabric deals? The longest one we know of is the line for Sample Spree at Quilt Market.

And speaking of which, hello to all of you waiting in the Sample Spree line! We hope you received one of our sample packs of twenty-six 3" Marblehead squares while you are/were waiting in line. And then used your smartphone to pop onto our blog! While you're chatting with friends and making new ones, enjoy the beautiful colors of the fabric and start brainstorming a block to make using them, because we have a challenge for you.

When you return home from Quilt Market, sated with fabric-y goodness, we hope you'll dig these sample squares out of your suitcase, stitch a 12" square block, and send it to us. We'll sew all the blocks we receive into a quilt(s!) and donate it (them!) to charity. We'll also select a winning block, and the block maker will receive a free Marblehead Global Brights fat quarter pack just in time for Christmas!

And while you're at Sample Spree, stop by and visit us at table #178 and #179. We'll be the tables with towering stacks of fat quarters. :)

Happy Shopping!

p.s. We want to know....what is the longest you've ever waited in line for a fabric/quilt-related purchase or event? And was it worth it? Tell us about it!

  1. I think I must be crazy! I was one of the first few in line, got in line about 4pm or so. It was worth the wait, because I got to meet a lot of great people, learned and shared. That was the longest that I have ever waited for an event like this, but I would do it again to meet more fellow quilters.
